Converting your basement into living space is a great way to make the most out of the unused space in your home. Especially now that we’re spending a lot more time at home due to the Coronavirus, having that extra square footage can change the function of your home’s layout.
No matter how large or small your basement space is, or what you plan to use it for, our experts at Renovation Realty can convert your basement into a multifunctional live in, play in, work in space. Not only can turning your dark, dingy basement space into livable square footage add more space to your home for a kids playroom, office or guest room, it can also add to the overall value of your home.
So what are you waiting for? That unused space in your basement is just waiting for a remodel project to be started. Below are some factors to consider when undergoing a basement remodel.
Basements collect a lot of moisture and tend to be damp and humid. When undergoing a basement remodel to convert it into living space, insulation is very important.
Basements are prone to flooding, so installing the proper waterproofing precautions is a factor to consider when undergoing a basement remodel.
Depending on your existing basement, the ceiling height might need to be expanded. Regulations vary, but some areas require a minimum ceiling height to meet code requirements. Digging into the ground to create a higher ceiling height might be needed.
Building codes require egress windows for the safety of anyone living in the basement to provide an exit in case of fire or other emergencies. Egress windows will also let in natural light.
Plumbing might need to be installed if adding a bathroom or kitchen in your newly-remodeled basement. Belowground plumbing should be left to the professionals.
